"Due to an industrial injury, I was unable to retain my employer sponsored health insurance. I was having some serious hypertension issues, that required several office visits and considerable lab work, as well as other ongoing medical issues. I looked into state sponsored health insurance but found it unaffordable. I was paying for all my medical expenses and prescription medication out of pocket. At times the cost would make it so I had to skip treatments that I couldn't afford.
A friend saw a reference to Project Access and gave me their phone number. I figured it wouldn't hurt to call, even though every other resource was too expensive, or I didn't qualify.
I was screened over the telephone, the staff was very compassionate, understanding, knowledgeable, and helpful. I was determined to meet their guidelines I was walked through the options I was eligible for. I was able to pick a health insurance that met my needs.
I was on the program for 18 months until I was eligible for other healthcare. I can honestly say that Project Access probably saved my life.
To those who donate money, and to the doctors who donate care, I can tell you, that this program is carefully administered and is truly reaching those in need. I will always be grateful for the hand up I received from Project Access."
